so the power cable I need to hook up to dishwasher has one white one tanish color and then the ground so do I go white whit black to the tanish and then green to ground the bare copper one?
If you are comfortable with the process use a voltage meter and determine which conductor is hot. Then permanently mark it with a fat black magic marker.
should have 1 black, 1 white, and 1 green or bare copper, black is normally the hot leg, white is neutral and green wire is ground, always use a volt meter and check black to ground and white to ground to see which is the hot leg.
